Testimony began this morning in the trial of a Marion man accused of Neglect in connection with the death of a two-year old girl left in his care a year ago.
Donald Riddle is accused of not seeking medical help for two-year old Arianna Carmack, who died of mysterious burns in February of last year in her home.
The pathologist who conducted the autopsy on the girl’s body testified today that second and third degree burns on the girls face and chest cause her death, but that the child could have survived if she had received treatment.
Riddle was charged in connection with her death a short time after she died, but earlier this week similar charges were also filed against the girl’s mother...Marie Lloyd. She’s being held in the Grant County Jail awaiting a court appearance. Meanwhile, testimony in Riddle’s trial continues in Grant County Superior Court 2.
